Cooking Tomato Collection contains the following varieties:
Corazon - A new hybrid of a traditional oxheart (cuor di bue) type. The healthy plants produce big, ribbed, meaty fruits of excellent flavour. Shows good resistance to Verticillium Wilt. 1 Plug Plant.
Brandy Boy - Brandy Boy captures all the rich flavour of the beloved Brandywine heirloom tomato (long the flavour favourite among heritage tomato enthusiasts) with a more shapely form, tidier growth habit, improved disease-resistance and bigger, earlier yields. Our new hybrid produces loads of large pink fruits up to 14cm (5½") across. The fruits ripen evenly and share Brandywine’s soft heirloom texture, thin skin and exceptional tangy-sweet taste. Beefsteak tomato. 1 Plug Plant.
San Marzano - The very best of the plum tomatoes, this famous Italian heirloom variety has been grown by connoisseurs for over a century. The low water content makes it perfect for cooking, adding rich flavour to passatas, pasta sauces and pizzas. It grows indoors or out, although you'll ripen the fruit more reliably with the warmth of a greenhouse. 2 Plug Plants.
Bumble Bees Sunrise, Purple, Pink - Sure to create excitement with their extraordinary beauty and superb flavour. Fruits are purple striped with green, pink with yellow colouration and golden-yellow with orange stripes. Well suited for growing in a greenhouse or outside, they will set heavy crops of 2-3cm round fruits which will hold on the vine for an extended period of time with no cracking. Plants are indeterminate (grow as a tall single stem, and remove sideshoots). Ideal for eating fresh or cooked. Plants are indeterminate and should be tied to a support, to a height of approximately 1.8m (6'), with side shoots regularly removed. 3 Plug Plants (1 of each.)
Tangerine - Tipping the scales at up to 340 grams this smooth skinned, orange heavyweight is plump, dense, meaty with very few seeds. A tomato that is bursting with flavour and ideal to have with dinner, lunch, snacks or on the breakfast plate. Tolerant to verticillium and fusarium wilt. Indeterminate. 2 Plug Plants.
Principe Borghese - This popular Italian heirloom is an ideal variety for drying, with low moisture and few seeds, along with excellent flavour. Compact plants produce heavy, concentrated yields of small, red, plum-shaped fruits. Its determinate growth habit makes it a good patio plant. 1 Plug Plant.
